About Jenny

I am the mother of 4 now grown children. I was not always a teacher, but I always dreamed of teaching. I worked in a factory for 12 years while my children were growing up and I missed so much of what they were doing in school. I chose to quit my job at the factory and go back to school to finish my teaching degree.

I started my teaching career as an elementary teacher. I was needed as a special education teacher under emergency circumstances. I began teaching special education in the high school setting on emergency certification. I liked it so much that I went to school for my LBS1 (Learning Behavior Specialist 1). I enjoyed teaching special needs children so much I made it my new career.

I get to help teach in the regular education room because my school does lots of inclusion and co-teaching. I like working with other teachers and children and learn more about teaching and learning every day. I love working with children. I get to attend classes that I normally would not be in as a special ed teacher. I would not change what i do for anything.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching elementary children for 8 years. My degree is K-9 regular education with 4 middle school endorsements and special education certification.

Phonics

Many of my students are behind in learning the letter sounds and matching them to the letter visually. I work with Jolly Phonics to help my students increase their letter and sound recognition. I have found that using both songs and worksheets increases results.

Special Needs

I am certified by the state of Illinois as a Learning Behavior Specialist 1. I currently teach a Cross-Category class room. This means I teach students with any and all disabilities within our school. I am also CPI (Crisis Prevention and Intervention) certified.
